This is a great place for locals to go. Depending on what time of night, it could be a older crowd or turn into a college crowd. The menu gives a lot of variety and most all on the menu is good. If you are...More

Nice place to eat and have some drinks near the Univeristy. You can have dinner with family or just hangout and get appetizers. They have a covered outside patio. Sometimes they have live music

Spankies has been around for a long, long, long time. For a while, before Cookeville had liquor-by-the-drink, it was THE place to go. The menu was fun, as was the decor, and it's just a block from the university. Now, the only thing updated is...More
